Another phishing e-mail is making the rounds this morning. The message asks users to submit account information to prevent their Webmail account from closing.
UA's Information Technology Services urges you to disregard and delete the e-mail. The message, from an unknown source outside of the University, is an attempt to fraudulently obtain sensitive information in order to assume the recipient's identity.
Remember, the University never requests account passwords by e-mail.
If you have already responded to this request, please contact the UA Support Desk (Help Desk) at ext. 6888 to change your password.
The fraudulent e-mail is below.
